Some things man was never designed to do. Visiting space is one. Riding the world's tallest waterslide is another, too. Travelling at 300mph down a street on a jet-powered luge is without doubt another. But of course there's some crazy guy out there attempting it.
Daredevil Aussie Daz Fellows has built a modified street luge packing twin-turbine engines, capable of 244kg of thrust. Lying on a moulded board of carbon fibre, he's hoping to break a world record by hitting the 300mph/482 km/h speeds on a street run. It is of course highly dangerous, and Daz will have an onboard killswitch should things go out of control.
